Helen Skelton shares cryptic post as ex enjoys getaway with new girlfriend

Since the announcement about her marriage break down, Helen Skelton has maintained a dignified silence – until now it would seem.

The Countryfile star appeared to land a dig which could have been aimed at her estranged husband Richie Mellor as she spoke out about "recovery" as a parent.

Stepping up to inspire new mum's who may be struggling after having a baby, the TV star wanted to provide reassurance that they were not alone.

The post read: "It takes 18 to 24 months to recover fully from having a baby.

"If you feel like you're 'behind' or 'not where you want to be' at 11 weeks or six months postpartum, just remember that you're not."

It is thought that the cryptic post could have given some insight into Helen's heartbreak after she announced that she and rugby star Richie were parting ways.

The bombshell news shook everyone, with the devastating news landing just three months after Helen had given birth to their baby daughter, Elsie.

In recent weeks, Helen's ex-husband's new romance with Stephanie Thirkill – the daughter of the multi-millionaire President of Leeds Rhinos, that he plays for – has been at the centre of attention.

They wasted no time at all with going public with their relationship as they jetted off for a romantic getaway to Cornwall together.

Sharing a love-up snap on Instagram, Richie appeared to make a sly dig within the comments section.

He penned: "Cornwall. Was worth a 32-year wait."

This was followed up with a gushing reply from Stephanie who responded with: "Thanks for the best weekend! Love you."

Last month, Richie and Stephanie became social media official as they attended the Wimbledon tennis championship together – which landed just days after he'd announced his split from Helen, who he'd been married to for eight years.

It is understood that the new couple met last autumn when they attended a rugby dinner together.

Richie was still married at the time but has always denied that there was any foul play, explaining his romance with Stephanie began after his marriage had ended.
